Alumni POV

Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ’06 and Lileana Blain-Cruz ’06

Princeton alums and Obie Award winners Lileana Blain-Cruz ’06 and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins ’06 discuss the formative theater community at Princeton and their experience returning to campus to stage GURLS, Jacobs-Jenkins’ new adaptation of Euripides’ The Bacchae that was commissioned to celebrate the opening of the Lewis Arts complex. Directed by Blain-Cruz, GURLS had its world premiere in October 2017 to a sold-out house in the Wallace Theater during A Festival of the Arts at Princeton.
